Wormsloe Park in Savannah Georgia: Part THREE

Please go below this blogpost for Parts ONE and TWO
if you haven't read about Wormsloe State Historic Site in Georgia
yet.

Today, I am ending the series with just some nature shots that we got
on the trails in the park.
I was Oooo-ing and Awwww-ing all through our walk
because I found the tropical woods so wondrous.

I was snapping away at everything with my lens.

So grab a mint julip and get your Savannah woods on....



Found a spunky squirrel up in the trees:







I couldn't STOP taking photos of the big oaks full of Spanish moss:







I loved this mossy stump next to the palms:







The palm leaves backlit by the sun:







Everything looked so bright green after the rain and when the sun came out:







Oh gosh...vines AND Spanish moss...it was too wonderful:







I just loved the driftwood we saw on the property. I always wondered just how OLD it might have been:







A wonderfully twisted dead tree:







A little black and white drama of the tree!:







Right as we were leaving the park, I heard a familiar tap-tap-tap.
A woodpecker near the Spanish moss!:







One last shot of the wonderfully twisted dead tree:


Next post, I will do the entire post on those gorgeous Oak trees with spanish moss.
Because I just HAVE to share them with everybody.
I HAVE to......

Wonderful photos. I love photographing trees. We have a few of the Red headed woodpeckers here, one has been quite friendly with me as I put out peanuts and he loves them . I have now named him Charlie , every morning he is at the bowl waiting for me to fill it and squawks as soon as he hears my voice .I did a post with photos of him . Have a great day.
